Perfect Venue for Perfect Day
Choosing the location to is one of the most important and potentially one of the most difficult decisions you'll make with your partner when planning your wedding. If the unbelievable beauty of the prairie, the masterfully renovated building with the incredible chandelier, the secluded feeling the trees of this nature preserve, or how professional and helpful Duncan and his team are, aren't enough of a reason to make the decision to book this venue for your wedding, consider that the money you'll be spending goes directly back to the children of the community to help with the recently opened preschool and field trip programs. Not only will you have the PERFECT location for the most special day of your lives, you'll also be doing an act of goodness, so you'll feel good about your decision as well.Sent on 10/16/2019
I can't imagine having a wedding in any other location.

Couldn’t have asked for better
The Aldo Leopald Nature Center was the perfect venue for our September wedding. The location is beautiful, there’s plenty of indoor and outdoor options, and the staff were extremely attentive and supporting.Sent on 09/29/2019
We were able to have our wedding outdoors, and our reception indoors while allowing the guests to frequent an outdoor bar and take their drinks along beautiful nature trails. There was a bonfire area that we took advantage for late night smores, multiple rooms for photography projection (including a cool 3d globe projection room which was fun), lots of spaces for guests to hang out in and outdoors, the list goes on.
The ALNC also helped cut down on our price and stress of wedding planning. The venue provides (for a small additional fee) chairs and tables, a place to project photos for you at no additional cost, and amazing support staff (shout out to Duncan for answering all of our questions in no time flat)! The ALNC also allows you to bring in your own alcohol, which saved us a ton of money and really let us customize our bar (homebrew)!
I’m addition to all you get from the venue, from what I understand your money is going to a great cause by having your wedding at the ALNC. The Aldo sponsors field trips for schools, and the money you spend helps keep those field trips affordable for schools that might otherwise find it harder to invest in education about the environment.

Amazing Venue and Exceptional Staff
The Aldo Leopold Nature Center was the perfect choice for both our ceremony and reception. The building and grounds are beautiful and our guests really enjoyed both in the inside and outside amenities. What really made this venue shine, though, was the staff. Duncan was there every step of the way, both answering all of our questions and providing suggestions. The staff assistance throughout the entire weekend was phenomenal, as well. They were extremely flexible given the uncertain weather, and when the decision was made to move the ceremony inside they went above and beyond to ensure that everything went perfectly. We highly recommend the Aldo Leopold Nature Center to anyone looking for a ceremony and reception venue.Sent on 10/02/2019
